Government and the Rule of Law in the Modern Age

Law Department and Clifford Chance in conjunction with JUSTICE: The Rule of Law series

Date: Wednesday 22 February 2006
Time: 6.30pm
: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Lord Goldsmith
Commentator: Khawar Qureshi
Chair: Lord Justice Jacob

In recent times the great advance in human rights discussion has to an extent eclipsed the truism that without the rule of law and its institutional features these rights will not be realised in practice.

Lord Goldsmith is Her Majesty's attorney general. Khawar Qureshi is a barrister at Serle Court.

The next event in the series takes place on Wednesday 1 March - Roger Smith, a solicitor and director of JUSTICE will give a lecture on Changing the Rules: the judiciary, human rights and the rule of law.
